    I’m to a point where I listen to every rally or interview, usually while I’m working. I find there are little nuggets of new info or commentary in each one. It never gets old hearing “Believe me, folks, we are going to Make America Great Again!” To which I respond with a fist pumpin’ woohooooooo!!

    I hear a lot of folks saying they like Cruz because he is such a big Christian. I am a Christian myself and that really bugs me. Didn’t God use all sorts of men to change the world for Him? Matthew comes to mind. Who is out there actually giving thousands of us a true, happy hope for a better future for our country? It’s Trump all day, every day.

      It’s sadly true in some quarters there is some sort of ‘good Christian’ test. I’m the sort who prefers a quiet Christianity, which is decent when no one is looking. Trump exhibits this with numerous, quiet acts of charity and kindness.

      The Disciples came from a variety of backgrounds, all were flawed. What I think is an interesting point I’ve not seen mentioned is Trump ‘gets’ this principle, when he talks about bringing on negotiators for the US. He point blank states some are ‘terrible people’ whom no one would ‘want to invite for dinner’. YET, they are willing to serve and will represent the interests of the US citizenry extremely well.

      Would those who insist on a purity test also refuse to utilize the best negotiators in a Trump admin? Just wondering to what level it goes. The thing is, we are ALL flawed. Even Saint Ted.

        I’m the same as you Sharon. The public holy-rollers who beat their chests and pray in the public square “Already have their reward” (who said Christ couldn’t do sarcasm ? lol).

        My mother, to this day, folds her collection basket offering into a tight, small square. It’s impossible to tell if it’s a $1 or $100 dollar bill. And do to being so small, it’s impossible to tell if she’s placing a bill or a coin in the basket. I do the same qnd have taught my son to do the same. Why ?

        During the depression, when she was a little girl, he father taught her to do it that way so the other children, the majority of who’s fathers were out of work, would not be ashamed by putting in only a penny, or nothing when she was putting in a whole dollar. He also taught her she was to never feel she was in any way better than the children who’s family were fairings worse.

        It’s about humility and private penance and private giving/good deeds. Not running around proving you’re better because you’re born-again or have a longer Sunday service and swing your arms back and forth in rapture when praying.

        Give me quite but sincere Christianity any day of the week.

          This may make sense to you, but as one of the Deacons who counts the offering, I can tell you that unfolding those wadded up bills is not nearly as much fun as folding them up in the first place.

          Don’t get me wrong on this, every contribution is appreciated. OTOH you could put the money in one of the envelopes provided, and no one will know the amount.

          Typically there are two people counting the contributions from a few hundred members. While one or two like that is no big deal, if they all took an extra minute to unfold and count we would be there for hours.

      I see Trump as a highly skilled, smart man, and a proven leader in business.
      He is NOT a politician but can speak at the level of “every-man” and loves America.
      He is unabashedly proud of his country, and how long has it been since we have heard a leader say that? I find him refreshing—“warts and all”.

        It is worth noting that the United States has enlisted the aid of less than savory, but highly patriot Americans to accomplish great things. Once upon a time New York harbor was the greatest, largest, busiest port in the history of mankind.
        During WWII, the mafia used it’s muscle to make suspected German sabators “disappear” and promised there would be zero labor unrest on the waterfront during the war. Both actions were taken at the request of our government.
        The mafia also helped with the planning for U.S. to land in Italy. Last time I checked, the mafia were a bunch of murderers and criminals. So what.

        Does anybody think these collaborations were wrong or didn’t represent American “values” ?

      The more I learn about Cruz the more Creepy he sounds. Too many questions, and his Canadian birth brings up too many problems(actually that is only one of the many similarities Cruz has with Obama). Do believe that Cruz will be disqualified at the convention if he gets the primary. then the GOP will put one of their puppets in. GOP is using Cruz.

      I’m a Christian, too, and this tendency to vote for somebody based on their “godliness” bugs me, too. I see the tendency as not only wrongheaded (we are not voting for prophet), but even, dare I say it, decadent. Frankly we don’t have the luxury of holding out for the perfect godly candidate. Maybe we never did, but especially not today. As Christians we need to get on board the broad coalition of patriots and join the fight, and not hold it up by insisting that only the most devout among us are acceptable. Just look at the bible and you see Solomon, David, and so forth. Even in the good book the greatest and best leaders were rarely the most pious!

              Well, I have a number of Catholic friends who, when initially asked if they were Christian, corrected the inquirer and denied they were “Christian”, correcting it to “Catholic”…. So that works both ways. In fact, they said it with disdain, as if the term “Christian” (which was first named that specifically in Antioch, as stated in the Holy Scriptures) was profane and inauthentic. I just refer them to the Bible, wherein “Christian” is specifically mentioned, and “Catholic” is not.

          I guess it depends upon what your definition of what a godly candidate is. But, I can say he understands why God created government and is prepared to put it as his number one priority. Which is the protection of our country that includes securing our boundaries!

          Did you know God designed and supports boundaries for our good and protection? And that the purpose of government according to God, is to protect the citizens from evil doers?

          So, if Trump fulfills the function of government the way God intended, then yes, he is a godly candidate. Not a perfect man, but one who understands his role and duty before God.

      Every time I think of who God uses to speak to people, Balaam’s donkey is first to come to mind (Numbers 22:21-39). God uses anyone and anything to get His message across. I’m perfectly willing to accept that The Donald’s Christianity may not be practiced the same way mine is, but that’s ok. I don’t need it to be. I just need him to do what he says he will do because that will accomplish a whole lot more than a room full of Evangelicals who’ve accomplished zero so far as the eye can see. I don’t mean that disrespectfully; I mean it practically in the context of politics. Of course, it is for God to reveal in the day of judgment who was for and against Him–despite the words being bandied about higgledly-piggledly.

      He has already proven he will do what he says he will do. His campaign talking points tally perfectly with what this nation needs. His track record of accomplishments over several decades are a matter of public record. Besides, he’s already presidential in his bearing, demeanor, vision and wisdom. Do you see anyone else single-handedly turning the political world on its head? He accomplished more in one announcement speech then all the rest of the candidates put together. He is leading. He is changing the landscape already. He is not just beating back the barbarians, he is taking the fight to them and winning. Big time.

      Do you realize what a gift it is to have a real man showing the way of a true President and leader of the free world while we still have a year left of the great pretender?

        Also can’t forget that he was much higher in the polls a few weeks ago than he is now. And every bit of the decline is due to Trump, regrettably not all of the poll movement has gone that way.

      I followed your link and yes Ivanka is an exceptional young woman. I looked at her jewelry line and wouldn’t you know her gold jewelry is 18 carat. At work I always admired the beauty of the gold accessories worn by my co-worker from India. I was never to find even one ring that compared. All you can get around here is 14 carat gold and it just doesn’t look as luminous.

    I came across the Scott Adams “Dilbert” blog from a user post at 538. http://blog.dilbert.com/ He mentions Trump being a ‘master persuader’, perhaps the best he has seen – which is how he has been able to completely change the dynamic in the primaries. His prediction about Iowa – http://blog.dilbert.com/post/136042658956/is-iowa-a-caucus-or-a-mental-health-problem . What do you think? He gives an interesting analysis on the ‘shlong’ controversy and Trump’s perfect phrasing of Clinton as having no ‘stamina’.

    I started to say that this was one of Trump’s best speeches, but really it was more like a conversation than a speech. I liked how he brought up the issue of who his supporters are and that they are not ALL blue collar voters (whom he happens to like, btw), but they are also executives and young people, etc. He then went on to say that “they” are trying to marginalize us by describing his supporters as only old people and non-college educated people. You only need to look at the people at his rallies to know that just isn’t true.

    I also like how at the end he told everyone they have to vote, even if they think he’ll win and their vote isn’t necessary. He said that winning overwhelmingly will give his Presidency more power and a mandate. Great point.

    KitKat, I also loved the hairspray routine. Too funny!

    And finally, once again he mentioned a conversation with a liberal reporter who asked him how it feels to have done what he’s done in this campaign. (His answer, it will mean nothing unless he wins,) So, who do you think that reporter is? My guess is Chris Wallace.

      Trump doesn’t make statements casually. Think about that. Every statement is a calculated “message”.
      Then consider;
      (quoting Buck Weaver paraphrasing Trump)
      “… he told everyone they have to vote, even if they think he’ll win and their vote isn’t necessary. He said that winning overwhelmingly will give his Presidency more power and a mandate.”

      Don’t wait for the Trump campaign “ground game” to do all the work.
      Ask people if they need to be driven to the polling place.
      Ask people if they need help registering.
      Ask yourself “What have I done today to help Donald Trump win ?”

      I’ve wondered about that, and couldn’t imagine who it might be, and I think that Chris Wallace is a very good guess. Which reminds me, he sure dished on Chuck Todd today. I agree a hundred per cent that this was one of his best, if not THE best “conversation” (good description) to date.

      Regarding “blue collar” workers. Except for the rentiers — most of whom support the Vichy Republicans — we are ALL blue collar workers, whether we’re doctors, lawyers, nurses, engineers, secretaries, construction workers, carpenters, check out clerks, hairdressers, middle executives because our income comes through “the system”. That means before we get our check (from the hospital, medical school, law firm, company, business, etc., the government has collected its withholding, social security, medicare taxes. THEN we get our check after all that is taken out. So when the Vichy Republicans and Marxist Democrats demean Trump’s supporters by using what they consider a pejorative, they’re saying more about themselves than they’re saying about us or Donald Trump.

    Trump’s ability to connect with us is amazing. He appears at one giant rally after another, and always chats with audience members, mid-stream, in the middle of a thought. He responds to the voters. And then, he goes back to his original point. Nobody else can do that; they are all cardboard cut-out caricatures of themselves, giving dry, boring speeches written by scheming handlers. If somebody interrupted them, the handlers would have to pause or rewind the teleprompter. It would totally gum up their carefully-rehearsed presentations.

    Not so with Trump. He speaks off the top of his head with very few notes, and gets better at it every time he has a public appearance–which is seemingly every day.

    When speaking with the press, Trump leans toward the questioner and refers to that person by name. He exudes confidence.

    Trump is a very effective communicator, the best in the campaign by far. Couple that innate talent with his stance on the issues that affect us all, and it’s little wonder that he is leading in all the polls.

      Yes! I forget what he was talking about, maybe global warming, and he mentioned “the Universe”. That triggered his story about Miss Universe and Univision and all that. Finishes that and comes right back to his original topic. He cracks me up.

      I agree about his people skills. Remember he said a few times towards the beginning of his campaign that he attended the same church as Norman V. Peale, he of the “How to Win friends and influence people”…bestseller. I have read that book twice and have to agree that everyone needs to read and follow Peale’s advice if they want to be successful in relationships.

        I feel he can go off script and come right back because he believes what he is saying. It is part of who he is. It’s so enjoyable to watch him, so uplifting which is something Americans desperately need after the last three administrations.

            There is a change in aura, for the good, and I believe it is deliberate. We’re seeing him getting down to business. He’s his own man. The ads are coming – his and those of his many detractors and their Super PimpPACs. He knows the stakes, and is taking nothing for granted. He is one serious and confident candidate. There are no others.

    I deliberately wore my Trump sweatshirt to the auto body shop this morning since I knew I’d be waiting an hour or so and thought it might generate some conversation. It did. In fact, one of the guys on the desk asked me where I’d obtained the shirt and I told him at the Trump store, and he said he had taken a picture of me and my shirt and sent to his sister in Greensboro — who promptly texted back, I want one! That was pretty funny.

    So that started a jolly conversation that might not have happened without my wearing the shirt. It’s very easy to talk to people about Trump cuz he has it all, and you can believe we were all in 100% agreement about Obama and Hillary. I reminded them all how imperative it is to be registered and then to vote on March 15. All I know is I was friends with everybody in the office and shop when I finally drove away.

      I like to bring up Trump with friends and others because you can sometimes use it to correct things they’ve seen or heard. Sometimes those corrections with the truth can turn a leaning Trump to an all in for Trump.

      I wear a “Trump 2016 – Ask Me Why” button that never fails to generate great conversation. Today, I met a woman at Lowe’s when she told me she liked my button. In the course of the conversation I found out she’s also a Treeper!

      Frankly, I find it easier to talk with persuade strangers than family members and some friends. I’m having a lot of fun doing it.

    Trump speeches are wildly and effectively nuanced. Fireside chats. Every platform or position he takes commences with a raucous obvious disdain for the elite PC position, then subtly lowers his voice to make all in attendance lean forward to catch and grasp every word and concept he is proffering. Finally, he ends each platform with an indignant crescendo of “What’s so hard about doing that?”. ! Love it.!!! Trump 2016.

  24. I came back to listen to the Hilton Head rally again. I think he delivered a killer line, at least as powerful as calling Jeb “low energy”. Re Hillary, Trump said, “I love the concept… I love, love, love having a woman president. Can’t be her [Hillary]. She’s horrible, horrible.”
    It de-fuses the ‘war on women’ argument from the left but, more importantly, should cause women to stop and think – He’s right. It will happen eventually. She is not the one. This is not the time.
    Ivanka for president – 2024 !!!
